This editorial appeared in the New York Daily News on June 22:

NEW YORK (Tribune News Service) — At a panel discussion at the Holocaust museum in New York [last] week for his forthcoming film, “The U.S. and the Holocaust,” Ken Burns said that instead of the planned 2023 debut, he intentionally moved up the six-hour PBS broadcast date of the documentary, which has been in the works since 2015, to this September so it would air before the midterm elections.
